Keith Sawyer - New Publication

His latest book...A must read...

Sawyer, R. Keith. (Ed.) (2011). _Structure and improvisation in creative teaching_. New York: Cambridge.

With an increasing emphasis on creativity and innovation, teachers need to be creative professionals, and students need to learn to be creative. And yet, schools are institutions with many important structures and guidelines that teachers must follow. Effective creative teaching involves a delicate balance between structure and improvisation. The authors draw on studies of jazz, theater improvisation, and dance improvisation to demonstrate that even the most creative performers work within structures and guidelines. By looking to these creative genres, the book provides practical advice for teachers who wish to become more creative professionals.
